Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes: July 18th

Recommended Posts

And we now have the very first official hotfixes of the pre-expansion patch! We have a bunch of class fixes for various abilities that were either bugged or incorrectly converted, fixes for legacy content and Tomb of Sargeras bosses, as well as other stat squish issues in the open world, and finally, a whole lot of quest items that can again be looted and other quest fixes.

One might say this pre-patch was a little bit rushed. Doesn't bode well for BfA either.

I dont think so. When I look at these Hotfixes, I only see small errors which can be corrected in like 5min each. It comes with patching that there are issues. One cannot find all errors in the test environment.
The patching day was way smoother than any before.
Personally im looking forward to BfA and am not worried it is rushed.

Because the big errors that take weeks to fix are of course not in this list.

That's a fair point of course, however, reports of issues regarding performance (lag) were very high and this just transitioned into live without a fix.

I have no idea where you are getting this data from. Even Blizzard themselves said it went a lot worse than they'd hoped a few days ago.

Thats true, but the only big problem i noticed was their new social tool (+ the problems which occoured out of it). Did you notice more?
Edit: Nevermind, i just googled and read here a few articles. There are more bugs than i thought.

Fair Point, they should have fixed that. But sometimes it is better to do a release with bugs, when you dont know where the error is. Of course, that's no excuse for "bad" programming and lacking fix speed. But i think before we sentence BfA we should wait a bit and see what happens. I can only hope they get their fixes together relatively fast.

They said it went worse than expected, but in my opinion we had much worse. I had problems playing with the patches before. This time i could play (even with lag-spikes, but no disconnects or sync errors). Sorry if it seemed like i have evidence for it. I just stated my opinion. Which of course can be wrong. (I should know better and have my opnion supported by evidence. My bad.)

All in all i think we should see it a bit more differentiate and give them the chance to change it to the better.
But the damage is done. Customers dont forget this kind of crap easily.

Only bug that actually made something impossible was on Jin'do the Godbreaker in Zul Gurub. Some things I wish there had been more thought on (like adding a filter so you don't stick people with different War Mode settings in a group) but the game is playable.

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      "To find him, drown yourself in the Circle of Stars."

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.

      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:
      Priest
      Discipline Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Other Patch 8.3 Content:
